Haiku: The Black Bowl

wild cherry
blooming in the shadows
her sweet tears

 

“The wild cherry is the face of a maiden whom I saw sitting by the wayside. She wore a great black wooden bowl upon her head… and from under it her tears flowed like rain, for I saw the drops upon her white chin.” – from the Japanese fairytale The Black Bowl

 

Written for Carpe Diem #1354 The Black Bowl (Japanese fairytale)
